I received a letter of invitation one morning from the dean of College of Arts and Sciences of University of San Jose Recoletos in Cebu. They asked if I was available on a Sunday for the Cebu Archdiocesan Mass Media Awards 2011. It turns out that this site: soloflightEd.com, has been chosen as a Finalist in the CAMMA 2011.
15th Cebu Archdiocesan Mass Media Awards
Venue: SM Cinema 1
August 28, 2011 @ 5pm
The award-giving body recognizes content that’s been shared by different forms of media: whether it be in television, radio, newspaper, advertising or online.
CAMMA aims to recognize “local media practitioners across all media platforms” who help promote Christian values. The awards will be given in six categories: website, advertising, radio, television, Cebuano newspaper and English newspaper.
I’m not really sure of the criteria for judging the winner but I’m thankful to have been included. To think I was just looking for other opportunities to travel outside and plan what I’m going to do during the first quarter of next year. Then this news came up unexpectedly.
Best Personal Website category:
- Jun Tariman – http://juntariman.wordpress.com
- Vernon Go – http://vernongo.com
- Edcel SUyo – http://soloflightEd.com
Vernon Go won the award for the Website Category.
Not really sure why I’m included in this roster as my site is not really focused on Cebu as a whole. I write articles that deal more on narratives about my travels around the country and beyond. But the special mention was really great; it showed that I’m on the right track in producing quality content in my blog write-ups. Apart from that, representatives from different media forms were present which added more prestige to the event.
In the end, Vernon won the award and I congratulate him. It just shows that when we love what we’re doing, we will excel with our passion!
